Synopsis:
Following a near-death experience, Yella (Nina Hoss) flees her eastern German hometown, failed marriage and broken dreams to start over again in Hanover. By chance she finds work with ambitious and determined young executive Philipp (Devid Striesow) and enters a ruthless world of big business and cut-throat boardroom deals for which she finds her looks, quick wits and icy demeanor major assets. But just as Yella seems poised to fully realise her ambitions, she finds herself haunted by truths from the past that threaten to destroy her new life.

An intelligent film with a surprise ending - Yella review by DR

Spoiler Alert
23/04/2016

To interpret this film would be to spoil the enjoyment of the viewer, who will make his own interpretation.

The events comprise the common experiences of women. Trouble with their former partners, hope for a different future.

Yella seems to find a role where her knowledge of company accounts is only surpassed by her unsuspected interpersonal skills : a role bordering on the illegal. The film describes what happens when hope in general, e.g. for a worthwhile employment, or for worthwhile small business projects, is confronted with cynicism.
